WWE SummerSlam will be at Barclays Center in 2016 and 2017

Next year’s SummerSlam will take place on Sunday August 21, one day after NXT and a day before Raw. In 2017, SummerSlam will be on Sunday August 20 again sandwiched between NXT and Raw. Ticket information for next year’s SummerSlam will be announced in the near future.

Last month, 15,702 fans attended SummerSlam, giving WWE a gate of more than $1.3 million, the highest domestic gross in SummerSlam history. The previous night, 15,589 fans flocked to see NXT.

“We’re thrilled that they wanted to once again partner with us, and we jumped at the opportunity to lock them in for two additional years,” Keith Sheldon, Barclays Center vice president of booking, told The News. “WWE has been such great partners to us (and) the building in general. After the success of this past August’s events, it was a no-brainer to bring them back in 2016 and ’17.”

“The opportunity to be in New York City for the next two years provides an amazing platform for us to be able to work closely with our partners in NYC and New York City to blueprint the continued growth of our second-largest annual celebration, and it gives us a chance to build upon all of the points of success and all of the best practices that were experienced in our presentation there this year,” John P. Saboor, WWE’s executive vice president of special events, told the Daily News. “It’s the world’s greatest city and set of partners to incubate the incremental growth of this as our second-largest celebration.”
